Taxes, nursing homes among numerous topics at town hall meeting

A discussion of issues ran the gamut of what’s on the minds of rural Minnesota citizens at a town hall meeting on Saturday in Glenwood. Hosted by State Representative Paul Anderson (District 12-B, Starbuck) at Central Square Civic Center, about a dozen individuals showed up to speak their mind.

Anderson began by outlining the three big topics that will be the focus of the 2016 Legislative session that begins on March 8: a tax bill, a transportation bill and a bonding bill.

“The tax bill is sitting in a conference committee where it was left at the end of last session. It stalled out due to a lack of agreement on a 16-cent per gallon gas tax increase pushed by Dayton,” said Anderson.
